The SCM Studyguide: The Psalms introduces readers to mainstream scholarship on the Psalms and to the Psalms themselves, not least their major theological themes.

Many students are unfamiliar with the Old Testament and struggle to access it, with the exception of the Psalms, which are more familiar through their use in Christian worship and yet offer valuable insights into the world of the Old Testament.

The book will be particularly useful for students,  ordinands and readers in training, and individuals working on their continuing ministerial education or wanting to update their studies.

Each chapter has textboxes, study questions and suggestions for further reading. There are case studies of some of the most familiar Psalms and the book has a glossary of technical terms.

'This book ... is a very good academic introduction to the study of the Psalms ... There is a very comprehensive concluding bibliography which directs the reader to further suitable material. This book is probably written with the Old Testament student in mind, but nevertheless its content are within reach of any Christian with a serious interest in the Psalms.' -- Steve Dutfield, Christian Marketplace 201105
